Meet Dr. Martin Van Vliet

“It has been a pleasure and an honor to positively impact the lives of my orthodontic patients for over 35 years in the Hudson Valley and Metropolitan New York areas.

My goal for each patient is to create a beautiful smile and a healthier person in a warm and caring environment.”


Dr. Martin Van Vliet, a board-certified orthodontist, was born and raised in upstate New York. He attended the State University of New York at Albany, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree.

He continued his education at Fairleigh Dickinson University of Dentistry and received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 1975.

After completing a two-year residency of specialty training in the field of Orthodontics, Dr. Van Vliet earned his Orthodontic Certificate from the State University of New York at Buffalo. In 1988, he was elected as a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.

Outside the Office

When he's not creating beautiful smiles, Dr. Van Vliet enjoys spending time with his wife of over 40 years, Marita, their two children, Maureen and Michael, and their three grandchildren.

Though Dr. Van Vliet enjoys traveling, golf, and fishing, his favorite leisure activity is just spending quality time with his family.
